Temples play a central role in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

They are used for the faith's highest and most sacred ordinances, such as marriage and making covenants with God. Ordinances for the deceased are also performed in temples, including baptisms for the dead.

There are 143 temples in operation around the world, with another 27 either under construction or in the planning stages at this time.
